Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, though the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be an excellent bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Rover 25 Wallpaper. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Rover 25 Wallpaper is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to select from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the Rover 25 Wallpaper with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you will get the miserly Rover 25 Wallpaper Hybrid. On the highway, the Rover 25 Wallpaper is comfortable and compliant. Rover 25 Wallpaper also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Rover 25 Wallpaper with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Rover 25 Wallpaper provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of many upper trim levels. There are many of options to pick from across the way.
The Rover 25 Wallpaper can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content makes it supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space than the usual small sedan, the Rover 25 Wallpaper might you need to be the sedan for you.
The Rover 25 Wallpaper is the beds base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Rover 25 Wallpaper Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels could be included with the low trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Rover 25 Wallpaper stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Rover 25 Wallpaper features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
